After a while X11 became faster. Strange.

What I also noticed is that lsusb is very slow. 2 seconds:

root at letux:~# time lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0ace:1215 ZyDAS ZD1211B 802.11g
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0a81:0205 Chesen Electronics Corp. PS/2 Keyboard+Mouse Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 058f:9254 Alcor Micro Corp. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

real    0m1.980s
user    0m1.891s
sys     0m0.077s
root at letux:~#

This may be a similar issue with the CI20 which hangs after a while
(heartbeat LED stops blinking). Maybe an IDLE issue? or Cache...
